It’s not a secret Philippe Coutinho is on his way out of Barcelona, but nobody appears to be sure what his next destination will be. Summer is coming and rumors keep surfacing about the Brazilian midfielder’s future, as Barcelona can have plenty of bidders for him and can use him as an exchange currency for other players.

That is exactly what people are saying in recent days since Coutinho is linked with many and many clubs as the weeks go by. This time, reports indicate the former Internazionale and Liverpool asset might be making his come back to England and this time for Manchester United, in a move that would send French midfielder Paul Pogba to Barcelona, as per The Express.

According to their sources, the Red Devils would be willing to give up their biggest star to Barcelona in order to land Coutinho, who is a proved player in Premier League. Nevertheless, everybody seems to be aware of these plans, except Paul Pogba, who recently said playing for Real Madrid was a dream for him and anybody, so, not everything might be said on this matter.

Even if Coutinho doesn’t go to Manchester, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain also appear as potential bidders for the Magician -Liverpool is not an option right now, as they moved on and would lose plenty of money if Philippe leaves Barca. Chelsea is very likely to face the departure of Eden Hazard and Coutinho can make a good replacement for the Belgian; while PSG is always trying to improve its ranks and this guy can make almost every team he plays better.

Wherever he decides to go, Coutinho will have a bigger role than he has now with Ernesto Valverde's Barcelona; he surely won’t lack opportunities to go play somewhere else this upcoming summer.
